What is the circle of giving?

The Circle of Giving is our core group of donors who give $5,000 or more annually to support the grant programs and mission of Whitefish Community Foundation. Circle donors pool their resources to multiply their impact and provide critical funding to hundreds of local nonprofits serving the Flathead Valley.

What does your circle of giving donation support?


The Circle of Giving provides the funding for the Whitefish Community Foundation’s grant programs, including the Community Grant Fund, Major Project Fund, and Emergency Response Fund.


The Circle supports the Great Fish Community Challenge by providing the Match Fund that inspires thousands of people in our community to give millions to charity each year. The Challenge has raised over $28M to benefit our local communities since 2015.
